This is the week chosen by Nintendo to take out its biggest bet of the Christmas campaign, a title that has always had spectacular sales in its last 25 years, something that can only be achieved by a few titles chosen in the history of video games, and this new installment of Pokmon has not disappointed in sales, despite the fact that the critics They have been one of the worst in the saga.
